Rick (D716) shares the general appearance of Rick Sanchez, but has his hair combed back and wears a suit with a blue tie.
Rick (D716) works as a news anchor during the Citadel Presidential Election; the first democratic election for the Citadel's leader. He started the show with the headline "Gravity outages in East Sanchez Heights", with Rick (D716-B) reading the next, before cutting to commercial. Afterward, he is seen reporting on the presidential race being only one day away before mocking the Morty candidate with his co-host.
Later that same day he reports on the hostage situation at the Simple Rick’s Wafer Cookie factory while badmouthing Rick (D716-C) to his co-host. Next, he incredulously continues on over to how the Morty candidate is soaring in the election polls after his speech at the presidential debate.
When now-President Morty initiated the destruction of the Citadel in order to escape the Central Finite Curve, D716 lambasted the Citadel news before trying to escape in a portal. However, the Citadel's portal fluid had been tampered with by President Morty, and upon trying to leave he was killed by a creature on the other end of his portal.
